The Lord Has Come

All the Old Testament, all of God’s promise, all of Israel’s hope, the salvation of a broken world are found in an embryo inside Mary. 
   The creation of the world and the promise of the New Creation.
   The call of Abraham and the incarnation of the Word made flesh.
   The Exodus from Egypt and the new Exodus into God’s Kingdom.
   The Throne of David and the Messiah King who rules the world.
   The failure of Israel and the victory of the cross that defeats sin.
God’s plan for us arrives in the baby carried by a teenage girl.
